Nov 20 – Saint Felix of Valois, Confessor (W), Propers of the Mass – 1962 Missal

Introit

 

The just shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow up like the cedar of Libanus: planted in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God.  (Psalm) It is good to give praise to the Lord: and to sing to Thy name, O Most High.  Glory be to the Father.  The just shall…

 

Collect

 

O God, Who by the voice of an Angel didst recall Thy blessed Confessor Felix from the desert to undertake the work of ransoming captives: grant, we beseech Thee, that by Thy grace we may be freed from the bondage of sin through his intercession, and may be guided safely to our heavenly country.  Through our Lord.

  

Epistle – I Corinthians 4:9-14

 

Brethren, we are made a spectacle to the world, and to Angels, and to men. We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ: we are weak, but you are strong: you are honorable, but we without honor.

 

Even unto this hour we both hunger and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted and have no fixed abode, and we labor, working with our own hands: we are reviled, and we bless: we are persecuted, and we suffer it: we are blasphemed, and we entreat; we are made as the refuse of this world, the offscouring of all even until now. I write not these things to confound you, but I admonish you as my dearest children: in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Gradual

 

The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom, and his tongue will speak judgement.  The law of his God is in his heart: and his steps shall not be supplanted.

 

Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord: he shall delight exceedingly in His commandments.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – Luke 12:32-34

 

At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: Fear not, little flock, for it hath pleased your Father to give you a kingdom. Sell what you possess, and give alms. Make to yourselves bags which grow not old, a treasure in heaven which faileth not: where no thief approacheth, nor moth corrupteth. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

 

Offertory

 

In Thy strength, O Lord, the just man shall joy, and in Thy salvation he shall rejoice exceedingly: Thou hast given him his heart’s desire.

 

Secret

 

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that the offering we humbly bring may be pleasing to Thee in honor of Thy Saints, and cleanse us alike in body and in soul.  Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

Amen I say to you, that you, who have left all things and followed Me, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall possess life everlasting.

 

Post Communion

 

We beseech Thee, almighty God, that we, who have received heavenly nourishment, may thereby, at the intercession of blessed Felix, Thy Confessor, be defended against all adversity.  Through our Lord.
